what the fuck happened to physical media? Posted on May 20, 2023 by Anonymous what the fuck happened to physical media?
Once again Convenience and Efficiency triumphed over Humanity and Soul
too expensive, gamers don't mind playing full price for digital media
I get games on amazon, physical, for like 25-30AU$, the digital ones still cost $99AU over here.
it happened to itself
physical media should have evolved to a more durable format
paperless saves the environment!
Yeah, go ahead and save a game to an SSD and see if it plays in 50 years
>Says a coaster defender
And CDs last 50 years?
Nta but some of my CDs are 42 years old. Granted, they are those thicc CDs and in quality pressings unlike today's shitty pressings.
literally yes you subhuman swine.
I have music CDs from the early 80s that still work.
have a nice day.
the only way to keep a CD working in 50 years is to not use it. the read limit on flash media will long outlast
pointless waste of paper and plastic
CDs should have remained in cases similar to floppy discs even when it became an optical format. Manufacturers shouldn't have cucked to the record company boomers who insisted that music come on round objects.
Digital and companies realized they can make more money with digital and force people to use it.
Cheap steam sales got PC gamers used to buying digitally and companies were happy to stop having to waste money on
Now PC sales are nowhere near as good so it sucks, we fell for the trap. Consolefags are going through the same thing right now.

i haven't used an optical drive for a decade. once you could boot from usb drives it was over.
It'll probably come back when Trump gets back in office and passes the anti-NAFTA law to bring jobs and goods back here. It may take a few years to get to that point though.
why would i ever want to clutter my house with cardboard and plastic?
cause you ain't gay, are you anon?
Same can happen to your digital if your pc/consol get's coughts in a house fire
good morning sirs
Good morning customer
I don't think you get what a house fire is anon, unless all your digital are in drive's and those inside a fireproof safe then it doesn't matter what form your media is beside's physical media can come with art/lore books, poster's and can also have paintings etc...
1. create optical disc images of your CDs
2. upload it to MEGA or any other reliable cloud service
3. house fire destroys your drives or CDs
4. download disc images from your MEGA account onto your drives
Cloude storage's have viruses and trojans
>he doesn't have all this image files backed up on a MEGA account
Whoever laugh reacted needs their ass beat
Some nerd crying OTI because his hoard of useless plastic got burned is kind of funny.
>it burns your PC
>you burn to death in the fire
>can't play your digital downloaded games any more
if only he digitally rented instead
It's pretty wild that in 2023 people still live in flammable houses.
So every burger ever?
>what the fuck happened to physical media?
usb drives made discs obsolete for data transportation, and streaming made discs obsolete for entertainment. cheap hard drives made discs obsolete for long term storage. the internet got faster, and you could install a game faster than a disc could operate. the world moved on.
why did obama think it was so great anyway, I thought the first and third game were both better
Discs are digital too, there's no difference between having a game on a disc and a drive. People were giving it up for DRM (Steam, consoles) well before physical media lost favor. If you're locked into DRM anyway there's no reason to pay for someone to copy the files to a disc and mail it to you and downloading it directly from steam/PSN/xbox other than convenience.
Lazy fucks who are too fat to get off their couch once or twice an evening. Sad.
Is this why nintendo went with motion.Also xbox kinect
Digital distribution is vastly superior in all aspects besides soul
Digital game's should be free if it so great
it stats with j and ends with ews.
they have been destroying everything that is good for the past 4500 years.
Just so they can have they're heaven on earth serviced by the dumb goyim just like in current year
I'm sorry sir, that'll be:
>$90 if you want to play days early
>$100 if you want a bunch of other shit that isn't real
No box art
No stand alone copy of their program, one that takes 4 labeled, pressed, copied discs
No custom generated individual CD key labeled and printed on to sticker paper and added to 1 specific disc envelope
No shipping to individual retailors
No advertising spent in those retail locations
>but muh inflation meme games should cost more now! it's the cost of development!
We are being robbed.
fast download speed, online digital version preorders, steam and day 1 updates made them obsolete
Physical PC games still gets made and looks like this. this was my last hual
Even then you gays will still find an excuse not to buy it
>paying for porn
PCfags have specced themselves into all digital future. Bluray was not adopted by pc users and you get lauged at for even mentioning you ahve an optical drive.
Jesus christ how do you look the cashier in the eye?
>. Bluray was not adopted by pc users and you get lauged at for even mentioning you ahve an optical drive.
yeah it's crazy to me prebuilts don't even come with them now. if you go that route you gotta buy a damn usb cd drive.
